Cheap Dominican Republic Vacations

Your Dominican Republic vacation

The Dominican Republic is a favorite holiday destination for travelers weary of long and cold winters. Dominican Republic travel should include visits to the many national parks. The region around the capital, Santo Domingo, and the eastern tourist hotspots of Bavaro and Punta Cana, annually attract more tourists than any other place on the island. The white sand beaches on the island’s Atlantic coast and the city’s cosmopolitan accommodations are irresistible. Nonetheless, there are many regions of mountains and valleys that deserve to be seen. Humpback whales pass through the Samana Bay as they migrate from the North Atlantic Ocean.

Best time to take a vacation to Dominican Republic

  • Best Time to Go

    The climate of the Dominican Republic is tropical. The island experiences the hurricane season and severe storms with the rest of the Caribbean between June and October. Since it is too hot and humid for comfort, casual tourists avoid these months for the most part. If you are intent on whale watching, come between January and March, when humpback whales migrate south through the Samana Bay. The best time for Dominican Republic vacations is between December and April. Temperatures are usually between 25°C and 30°C, and the vegetation is exceptionally lush. If your Dominican Republic travel includes an excursion into the mountains, bring a sweater since it can get cool.
